[Colorado Road Trip – 2006]
This was a deeper orange color brew. Has a hard time with the over malty flavor vs the hops being a tad subtle. I was not a huge fan of this brew.

From the tap, this beer poured slightly hazy, amber in color with a very small white head that didn’t last long and left almost no lacing. There was good floral hop aroma here with little if any malt noticeable. The body was light with good carbonation. The texture was thin and the beginning was hoppy. It had a slightly bitter middle and a long hoppy bitter finish.

On tap at the brewpub. Rich amber color with a yellowish ivory head. Classical cascade hop aroma making this look, smell, and taste like a Colorado brewpub ale. Good, but not great.
